Problem keeping the order of keys when getting search volume estimates

Hi,

 

I need to get the search volume for a list of keywords and keep the exact order as i uploaded them. I have tried both: by uploading a file and just enetring the list in the editor, but each time the tool sortes the keywords as it wants (i suppose by the field "Keyword (by relevance)") while i don't press any filters or any types of sorting.

I know that it worked perfectly before (2-3 months ago), and i could get the keywords in the exact order as i uploaded them, but not now. Any suggestions please?

 

Thanks!

Hi James C,

 

When you upload a keyword list you can sort the keywords only by the pre-defined headings within the keyword planner: "Keyword (by relevance)", "Avg. monthly searches", "Competition", "Suggested bid" or "Ad impr. share" as shown in this screen shot.

At this time this is the only way to sort your keywords.
